GR-UK: "It must be tough to be called Activision right now. After two delays, they chose to discontinue the development of True Crime: Hong Kong. The reason was that the game had already cost too much and the publisher did not think it was sufficiently high quality. Millions of dollars right down the drain, in other words.
But United Front Games had, fortunately, never sold the creative rights to its ambitious action epic. The only thing that Activision took of True Crime: Hong Kong was the name. Six months later, it was clear that Square Enix had bought the rights to United Front Games and the name changed from True Crime to Sleeping Dogs."
